    Default "Casting Screen to <Chromecast Name> has failed" with Nexus 10

    I have a chromecast connected to my Denon receiver. I can cast YouTube videos so i know the CC is set up correctly. However, when i try to cast my screen i get the error "Casting Screen to Chromecast20 has failed". This happens with the native cast button as well as with the app. I can not get my screen to mirror. I rebooted the tablet and the chromecast with no luck. I also reset the CC to factory and redid everything, still get the same error.

    What OS are you running? Are you rooted? What version Google Play Services? Do you have "Enable wireless display" checked in settings?

    The Play Services version is good if that is what it has. What firmware version do you have onthe CC? It wasn't updated when this feature came out but just to make sure you're not stuck on an old one. Mine is 17250. Here you can see instructions for the display setting: https://support.google.com/nexus/answer/2865484?hl=en

    For testing, see if it makes a difference to connect the Chromecast directly to the TV. I don't have a Nexus 10. Mirroring works well on my Note 3 with 4.4.2 and the above Play Services and firmware. I'm using the Chromecast app version 1.7.4.

    For what it is worth I have successfully screen cast with my Nexus 10 so the device will definitely cast

    I tried it on a different TV directly connected and it worked. The video was very poor quality. Not sure why it wouldn't work through the receiver.
